THE SHERLOCK HOLMES
PIPE CLUB OF BOSTON
Keeping The Smoking Lamp Lit Since 1989
Hello Club Members,
I hope this message reaches you well. There has been a lot of new cases popping up and was one of the leading reasons we went virtual last month. We are going to meet in person this month and if you feel like joining please do. If not, you will be missed but, totally understand your position. However, we will be going over our choice for the POTY, there may be a slight change as we have a chance to obtain a beautiful “swan shaped” pipe from Merchant Service that is in high demand and limited supply. The distributor explained to Tim that they would hold 12 to 14 pipes until after our next meeting. So, if you can’t make for the vote, be on the lookout for an email explaining the details.
We do have a confirmed date on Saturday February 19th to celebrate International Pipe Smoking Day at the Humidor’s new shop in Warwick, RI. Time is set for 12 P.M., pizza and light refreshments will be served. They have done a wonderful job setting up the new store and it is well stocked with plenty of tobacco and a great pipe selection.
January was planned to hold “members favorite tobacco”. Derik G. has volunteered to bring a sample of his favorite blend for everyone to try. That has been rescheduled for February. Remember we won’t know what it is until the end of the meeting, and we all have had a chance to taste and comment. As discussed bring your own pipe(s) for the sampling. Corn cobs will no longer be supplied as most prefer a broken in pipe.
President’s raffle is easy this month…Show up and get a ticket. And don't forget, we still have a belated Christmas gift for members.
Riverville Murder Chapter 36
The Final Chapter
“Chief Cosmo Natali. In a hundred years, who would suspect him of being dirty! A sad ending to an illustrious career,” Matt said. “Time for this department to move on and concentrate on getting all of those crooks in jail. The DA and his crew have a huge task ahead of them.”
“I just started to wonder what is happening in that regard. I’ve been so busy rounding up offenders, I haven’t been able to keep up.”
“The best I can do is give you an abbreviated summary of charges and convictions. Thanks to the team from the Steno pool who went beyond the request you gave them and with unbelievable speed.” Matt Said.
